Darkly comic and razor-sharp, The Blessed Girl by Johannesburg-based novelist Angela Makholwa is about men, mental health, and getting rich by any means necessary, and then some. Young, beautiful and ambitious, Bontle Tau has Johannesburg wrapped around her finger and is a long way from the neighbourhood she started out in, but it's been far from easy. Even Bontle gets the blues from time to time, who doesn't, the shrink keeps wanting to talk about a past she's put firmly behind her. And what she doesn't think about can't hurt her, can it?
